For the 17th edition of Trivia Club at Farside it was unpredictable affair that found old faces return to take on Wednesday once again, and to see what might our Friendly Neighborhood location might hold with Damn Akroyd behind the bar for the night and even a quietly significant local celebrity!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with Biscuits! leading the field. Biscuits! included a familiar face from SPARTACUS, the very first Golden VHS Champs! Behind them in second, after the first round, were Call Me By My Name, who had a one point lead on the Magic playing Five Card Studs which featured a gentleman visiting from out of town who just happened to have been the voice of Ralph Raccoon on The Raccoons cartoon, Security Guard Sam Crenshaw on Today's Special, and the one and only Grumpy Bear in The Care Bears! It was a pleasure to have Bob take part, and put his years of NTN knowledge to the test! Rounding out the field were the excellently named Sgt. Thoughter!

Round two saw Biscuits! not only play the  Game Show Games , but use some luck to their advantage as well, when they grabbed the TOP TEN in both Countdown Takedown and Survey Says! With Sgt. Thoughter gaining eight points in both game shows they moved from fourth to second in time for Combo Breakdown, though it was Five Card Studs who held on to go head-to-head with the tough Biscuits! The last team standing, doubling up on their Combo as well, were Biscuits! for an additional THIRTEEN POINTS and a strong lead heading into the Tri-Pardo round!

 Tri-Pardo , our third round, had Biscuits! choose the first question and roll for twelve, while Call Me By My Name chose the second question and rolled for TWENTY on the first try, and finally those Five Card Studs chose the third category and rolled for six points! This meant that thirty-eight points were up for grabs! No team would hit for the triple, but Biscuits! would answer the first two categories correctly for thirty-two points, while Call Me By Name kept within half of the lead teams total with twenty-six points from the second and third questions! Both Sgt. Thoughter and and Five Card Studs would answer the second question correctly, but both would lose points on the third and first questions respectively!

Biscuits!, likely sensing their controlling lead, would only wager thirty of their points... which kept them far enough ahead of Call Me By My Name as long as they answered the  Trivia Finale  correctly! In fact, with Sgt. Thoughter also going all in... it was all the more important that Biscuits! answered the Finale correctly to solidify the result in their favor!

Finishing the night as runners-up? Sgt. Thoughter with an impressive 94 points! Going from post to post however, and never the result slip away... and picking up where he left off on Wednesday's as SPARTACUS... winning their FIRST GOLDEN VHS at Farside on 127.5 points... BISCUITS!
